I think the use of the word "bully" is trite and lacks imagination. Adults know that eventually, someone is going to say something they don't like. That's life. If you want to point fingers, make a list yourself. Not being rude, I'm just pointing out the uselessness of this question in relation to how much genuine information someone reading the answers could get from them. There are easier ways to start a flame war.

However, that's just my opinion...

i get what she means, some people just go out of their way just insult others, fair enough if people are using logic to mock someones questions, but no need to be nasty, most of the time you will find at least one person who will deliberately insult the question for no reason

As philbravery implies, there is no law against being offensive, certainly not online. Well actually there are such laws in the UK now, but they are very difficult to enforce and require use of 'real' names e.g. on FB and Twitter, not sites such as this where pseudonyms are used extensively.

 

I am certainly not going to be so childish as to list those I think are the worst perpetrators of such language, indeed some may think I am one of the offenders. Suffice to say if I see racism or sweeping over-generalisations that I deem offensive, and yes that is a very subjective call, I will point that out. I try and be polite, or at least ironic funny, but sometimes (often?) I fail and come over as rude.

 

To those offended I apologise, but I've found in the main such apologies and explanations are useless because those who accept the apology never really needed it and those who wouldn't accept the apology, (those you WANT to offend) take it as you being proven wrong.

Ahh well, life online is 'different'.

  Sammy, as you said yourself, this question was directed at Badtroll and he is quite aware that he's.........well........a bit of a c**t. He's just exercising his right to throw verbal sh*t around. Fair enough. You don't have to read it any more than he has to write it.

Actually Sammy you are quite astute. This blog has five posters who are what are known as "Blog Bullies" - people who think that because they have been posting longer than others have the right to insult or intimidate others. Badtroll is just one of the group. This is exactly why you see less and less posters with more than 10 or 15 posts before they get tired of the rude comments and look for a more friendly and objective environment.

 

The matter is further compounded by a moderators who is personal friends with two of the bullies and allows them to continue there rude ways unabated and then not only deletes the comments of those who defend themselves, but disables their user accounts so they cannot even make rebuttals.  I suspect he is one of those arrogant American control freaks that must exercise the only power they have in China - to edit a blog.

 

This matter of rude blog bullies and biased moderation has already been brought to the attention of the CEO of Echinacities.com.  If you want a better more objective blog experience you can try chinasmack.com, thebeijinger.com, or chinatoday.com. 

 

Now you can expect all the blog bullies to come out and attack me and any post I make with posts supporting the moderator.  Some of these blog bullies are also clearly reacists and they know who they are.  This post will probably be deleted within 48 hours (only because its a holiday) Usually it would be gone within 24 hours.

Don't like what people write then don't read. Simple as that. I'm getting tired of seeing butthurt topics like this. In fact, that's the reason I bounced a few month back and if it starts up again then I'll leave again. 

 

I find it much more insufferable when adults get pissy over some anonymous person's comments.

  Dunno about bullying, I did have my share of attacks from Crimo back when I was posting as Gaohao. This guy Mattsm84 (the post above this one) seems intent on taking things to a knew low though. Charming.

I need a drink. I can't really understand a lot of these comments here. I'll be back after I have a martini to give it another go.

Okay, now I get it. Yeah there a few rude punks here for sure.  I guess they can pretend to be macho man when they don't have to insult people to their face.  When they get up front and personal with someone who could teach them some manners, they would probably turn down the volume and be a bit more "socially sensitive" and polite.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
